  as you have less scores it will be better to go for pediatrics or family medicine. But if you go for pediatrics you need to have rotations in pediatrics it can help the application better. You can get the LORs in the specialty you want to apply for match.

  Try to look for Family Medicine as you have multiple attempts you need to gain multiple hands-on clinical experience in FM specailty for making the CV strong and shows that you are clinically active. You will also get strong LORs. Try to make connections it can help in getting IVs.
